So I've heard a word of mouth rumour, Sam allardyce has been spotted in southampton with possible view to a move to us if Claude Puel is sacked. Not sure if I believe this one I like allardyce as manager bit not what our club needs in my opinion and would rather puel have more time.

Does anyone have anything else on this, is this probably just a rumour?

No thanks we ain't in a religation battle YET.

2.) 23 May 2017 21:23:30
He has said he just wants to spend time with his family.

3.) 24 May 2017 09:44:51
I think you've made this one up yourself.

4.) 24 May 2017 12:59:20
He was in Southampton for a friends wedding, no more!

5.) 24 May 2017 23:20:48
Saintysaintsaint I clearly asked a question. It's a rumour site. That's what this site is for. Thank you ozz for clarifying my original question. Not that it was needed after allardyces retirement. It's nice to a been proven that he was spotted in southampton also.

6.) 25 May 2017 18:16:03
He has left Palace with a caveat that if he signs for another PL club within 2 years that CP will be due 2m. Perhaps in 2 years time (or 3 managers time) we will take him.

7.) 25 May 2017 20:37:32
He got £2m for leaving Sunderland (saving them), £1m on leaving the England post and £2m as a bonus for saving Palace. He'll be okay for a few bob - didn't Poch have to pay £2m to us out of his own pocket to join Spuds?

8.) 28 May 2017 13:47:13
I can't see him leaving a premier league club just to pay 2m out of his own pocket to join another premier league club personally. I don't think he is much better than Puel myself anyway. Good coach, but not great.

Keep seeing online about mauro icardi being linked with Saints. I don't know if it's false or recycled or what it is. Has anyone heard anything else on this?




22 Jun 2016 15:40:03
So I've heard a rumour that our new manager Pellergrini will be announced tomorrow with the official unveiling set to be on the 1St. Anyone shed any light on this?


1.) 22 Jun 2016 16:58:54
From whom did you hear this rumour? Seems strange that you are the only person spreading it which would suggest that this person has confided in you and no one else . Very odd as rumours spread quickly but obviously not this one.

2.) 22 Jun 2016 19:01:42
Was just word of mouth there wasn't real evidence behind it. Hence asking if anyone could shed any light on it. Was a posted question bot a bold statement.

3.) 22 Jun 2016 20:24:54
The 1st would tie in with his contract at City. Expires the last day of June.

4.) 22 Jun 2016 20:33:58
I know what you mean especially when this whole thing is dragging on. No offence meant phill, honest .

Hi eds,
Has there been anymore information on hernandez? Not really keen on taking on another striker who isn't perticularly keen on playing for us but the rumours have been floating about. If as reported is true about the wage bill inter were offering for van persie. I'm sure it was between 60-80k a week (15m per year) would that not be a cheeky signing worth a punt? Neither Milan club finished perticularly high in the league. As far as offering European football goes neither can do that.


{Ed002's Note - Putting aside your appalling mathematics; Inter, Dortmund, Spurs, Monaco, Southampton, West Ham, Lazio, Stoke and Everton have a declared interest in Javier Hernandez. If the price is reasonable then Galatasaray could revive their previous interest. His agent has said there is interest in the United States as well. I understand that Manchester United are looking to offer Hernandez to a Spanish side as part of a deal for another player.

Right now, I wouldn't hold your breath.}

1.) 15 Jun 2015 11:16:27
Sorry I do apologise was a long night shift last night. The figure was around £4.6m a year I actually saw. Which is close to 90k a week. Was trying to find the original article online, however it's like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Most journalism seems to be recycled with different words. Like copying your mates homework back in the day haha. Thanks for the reply though 😊

{Ed002's Note - No problem Phill.}

This isn't a rumour so I do apologise but benteke''s buy out clause must be causing a massive stir up for villa. For Saint''s to buy him would be a massive statement of ambition. Does anybody have any genuine ideas of our top targets this summer, edds maybe? What with European football probable surely we need to really strengthen the squad. We have a good first 11 but I can't help but think along the same lines as what benali said in the echo today.


{Ed002's Note - I can tell you players I am aware of Southampton having looked at or enquired after but I cannot answer anything about "top targets". My experience from this page last year makes me reluctant to give any detail.}

1.) 29 May 2015 17:21:52
After last year Ed 002 I don't blame you. I think that it's best to wait and see anyway as Saints usually surprise everyone by buying someone that nobody thought of.

2.) 29 May 2015 17:22:12
is his buy out cluse not 30m+? no thanks. would be a massive statement of "yeh we have lost the plot".

3.) 29 May 2015 20:57:50
Prices us out. I'm intrigued from David Gold's statement today that West Ham will be making a "big signing" soon. As they are one of the main teams we are competing against outside the top 6, anything they can do we should be doing better!

4.) 29 May 2015 22:12:03
Shame to say I had to get off my high saints horse becuase we can't offer the same money as west ham can offer

5.) 29 May 2015 23:39:15
A big signing, interesting, could that be related to them bringing in a top manager?

6.) 30 May 2015 10:40:18
Think you will find Wet Spam make the same comment every time season ticket sales are underway!

Ed's could you please give your insight on the situation, there's a lot of changing stories about whether it will or will not be completed. A more insightful explanation would be greatly appreciated on TV rights, finishing of the the season, and what is likely to happen please.


{Ed002's Note - Right now the Premier League want to find a way to complete the season and they are aware of options available if they can't. There are also aware of a further potential major issue which is why they are reluctant to make any statement or allow the matter to be discussed at this time.

There is no suggestion to simply void the season on the table. And I think it unlikely that anyone will look to go down that route.

Spain (RFEF) have decided that they will end the season, if the games cannot all be completed (whether they restart or not), by drawing a line across now, not awarding the title, and settling European places based on current positions (with the exception of the Copa del Rey place which if played will go to the winners else to Athletic Bilbao if it can't). The critical point is that if the season restarts but cannot be completed, the results revert to the standings at the start of the suspension - and the results of the games played after the restart would be voided - this is controversial as far as La Liga are concerned and they have a counter proposal that says if the games restart and then stop, those positions when it stops for a second time should stand. But the decision belongs to RFEF and typically they would overrule La Liga. Whilst they want to complete the league, they too are going to draw a June 30 line across if the games cannot start on May 28 and complete by then – although they have proposed a back stop of the end of July (but nobody wants to use it and clubs don’t wish to exercise it). They have not addressed promotion and relegation completely at this time but seem open to the two up/none down principle as others are considering.

The "Bundesliga" plan if they cannot complete the season: draw a line across; no champions; European places on current standings; top two promoted down through the leagues; no relegation this season but addition one relagated next two seasons. The approach has a lot of support.

Scotland have used the threat based model - vote for what we say and we will give you money to help you stay in business.

Belgium has gone roughly down the "Bundesliga" approach but have assigned Champions (there was a lead that could not be caught but play offs were wiped out - so Club Brugge are champions and all of the other sides agreed. This was driven by the simple desire that it could not all be completed by June 30 based on advice.

The PL is aware of all of this and if needs be will need to be bold and come up with a plan. My expectation is it will follow the "Bundesliga" approach.

There is no expectation that the broadcasters will seek payment for games not played as compensation.}

The premier League has to be completed to get the TV rights. It's part of the obligation.

I've seen comments from Cedric saying he is off at the end of the season regardless.

I don't think it's that tadic hasn't been good enough sometimes as he's putting balls in the box. There's just no target man. Gabbiadini was thriving on those low crosses when he first came in. At the moment with have redmond taking factor many shots when he couldn't he a barn door. The tactics and forwards don't suit tadic being on the pitch.

It's like he's trying to pick his strongest team on paper each week instead of using player strengths. He never seems to change much either when it's clearly not working. Looking at our run of games and the points difference to relegation zone I think we could likely be around that drop zone come the new year. This isn't a doom a gloom post I genuinely believe we fudged up changing manager.
